Amazing place and full with historical facts. We were staying in Yanta district of Xi’an and we book DiDi taxi for our travel to Qinshihuang museum. It took about an hour to reach at the museum site and we paid about 130 yuan. Due to current epidemic situation there is health code verification and foreigners need to fill up some informations at the desk while you enter. Ticket is 120 Yuan cash. Then we follow the map towards the main site of the museum. There are 3 pits with terracotta warriors in the site. We went to the museum with two chariots first. Then we went to pits 2, and 3 and then to 1, the largest one with thousands of warriors. It’s an amazing experience inside the museum. Note that there is no restaurant inside the museum. But there are quite a lot auto vending machines with snacks and drinks. Once you exit the museum, you end up with souvenir shops and lot of food stalls etc but those are all outside the museum site at the exit side. If you bargain when you buy souvenirs, price could reduce by factor 2 to 3. Think before you pay. Food stalls covers many local cuisines and around China and also western foods. After that we went to the car parking cite book DiDi and went back to our hotel.
this place is a wonderful place to visit. its good to visit the place if u know abt it beforehand. though there are english speaking chinese guides. wiki will give some light abt the place. we went from fast train so from xian north station took a didi like a uber for 110 rmb . the ticket price is 120 and if you have a student card its half the price. the place is large enough to spend around 3 hours . there are three pits 3,2,1.. i started from third pit coz its the smallest one.. and the 2 and then 1 .. the 1 pit is the largest one but the excavation work is still goin on .. there are hundreds of statues.. the hard work is just magnificient.. the pictures which we take are not enough for to capture the feelings which we have when we look at those by naked eyes.. the place is a must to go place though a bit far from city.
Full of history ! Definitely, a must see if visiting Xi’an. This place is massive! like pictures don’t do any justice to how great this place is.
easily reachable with the bus n 306 (7 RMB one way to buy on the bus). audio guides in Engl are bad (I think 40 RMB + 100 deposit). Most of the prebooked tickets are useless because you need to change it there. the place is amazing, and I recommend to start from Pit 3, then Pit 2 and finally Pit 1.
in the years I have lived in Xi’an, I have taken friends to see the Terracotta Warriors 10 times, and I still find it amazing.this is important; do not go to pit number one first. it is the first pit they opened up, it is the biggest. go to pit two and three first, then one. that way you will find your entire experience more interesting. if you do pit one first, the other two will be underwhelming. this should be your number one must see place to visit in this part of China.the exit is in a different place to the entry and you will have to walk down a wide street with all sorts of souvenir shops and restaurants. there is a Starbucks, McDonalds, Subway, KFC, which in this location is (sad to say) a better option than the local food which is over priced and poor quality. Later in the afternoon is a good time to go.
Really amazing place! it’s very exciting to be able to visit and active archaeological site. It can be a bit confusing to find the ticket area and entrance if you arrive on your own but it is easy to find cabs back to town. We went on a rainy day so I think there were less people which was nice. Highly recommend visiting this amazing historic site!
A must-see for any history buff! The three excavation pits and relics buildings are worth the crowds and waiting to get a good view. Still under excavation, it provides insight into China's preservation of heritage and culture. We did not have a guide, since signs had explanations in English.
